a tax cut vote, tyler, because the current law has those rates going up to 39.6%. so that may be an argument for going over the cliff for a few days, then solving it after that. >> that is what i've increasingly been hearing. if you wait until you go over the cliff, then the republicans can legitimately say we're voting to lower rates from those rates that the president allowed us to experience. let's talk about the president who is going to take to social media this afternoon to talk about the fiscal cliff. what's he going to do? >> reporter: i think he's just going to engage with the american public. remember, a key element of the strategy that he's had ever since september of 2011 when the grand bargain talks broke out -- broke down and post-election he's made clear this is going to remain an element of his strategy, is campaigning with the public. he made that trip to pennsylvania last week. he's trying to use the public, which polls show agrees with him on some of the key questions like top rate, to put pressure on the congress to move. we'll see how effective that can be
